Standard procedures used for fabrication of polymeric objects consist of polymerization, isolation, purification of synthesized polymer followed by shaping polymeric material into a desired form. However, there is growing an interest in processes with all these steps proceeding parallel. Apparently, parallel synthesis of macromolecules and their self-assembly into desired objects is less time consuming and more energy efficient. Recent studies proved that this way could be used for fabrication of nano- and microobjects with accuracy not attainable in any other way.
